Mount Magica: Magical Experience in Ranchi
Mount Magica is a farmhouse located in Tatisilwai, about 25 kilometres away from the Capital of Jharkhand, Ranchi. Overall it was a fun and entertaining experience.

It is a great getaway for a day near Ranchi where you don’t need to bring anything for a picnic, rather just reach the spot and enjoy the nature, surroundings and in-house games. It was a memorable day and we all loved and really enjoyed the Sunday outing.

Home Care Isn’t Home Health Care
Although there are many differences between home care and home health care, both types of care can help older adults stay safe and independent in their homes. Home health care provides “clinical” or “skilled” care by qualified doctors, licensed nurses and therapists whereas homecare provides “non-clinical” or “non-skilled” care by professional caregivers.
